Gifts for Kombucha Lovers
Kombucha is fermented tea, and it has become the face of probiotics on social media these days. But there are probiotics in so many more items than that. If you have a probiotic and fermentation loving friend in your life, these are the perfect gifts to help them maintain that “gut-health” they’re always talking about. While most probiotics, as we believe them to be, don’t actually survive long enough to benefit us in the ways that we hope, there’s no denying that the “probiotic” goodies we love are delicious! Whether they want to experiment with making their own fermented foods, or get healthier by moving towards a less toxic lifestyle, there is a probiotic here for them!
1) Seed Synbiotic
Introduce your friend to a probiotic that actually works. Seed is a daily synbiotic (probiotic + prebiotic) supplement that actually survives the trip through your stomach to your colon where it has the most beneficial impact. If you or your probiotic buddies thought you had a great daily probiotic, think again, and invest in Seed. This brand is also sustainable – you’ll receive a glass jar with your first order and recyclable and compostable refill packs after that. Who can say no to improving your gut health and avoiding adding a lot of waste to landfills. You’ll impress your friends and family if you get them a gift like this that invests in their healthy obsession of their gut health. Even better – you can save 15% on your first month’s subscription when you use code OLDWORLDNEW at checkout!
2) Kombucha Brewing Starter Kit
Brewing your own kombucha at home can be a fun learning experience, and it gives you the chance to create your dream flavors for a batch of booch. Fermentaholics makes it easy in their Kombucha Essentials Kit which includes organic live scoby to get you started, a 1 gallon jar, and other essentials. PS – make sure you buy this close to the time that it will be opened so that your scoby is fresh!
3) Hard Kombucha
Flying Embers Hard Kombucha is the perfect drink for people who love both booch and beer. I really liked the ancient berry and ginger flavors when I tried them at the Dallas Observers’ BrewFest at the end of the summer.
4) A Fermented Food Cookbook
Cultured Foods for Your Kitchen: 100 Recipes Featuring the Bold Flavors of Fermentation has recipes for nearly every meal – breakfast, soups, desserts, and drinks. Chai Spice Yogurt Latte or a Korean Style Rice Bowl with Kimchi or Sparkling Fruit Kvass – you’ll have plenty of options to get a little fermentation in your diet with this recipes.
5) Counter Culture Clean
Counter Culture is like kombucha for your countertops. Get it? “Counter” and “Culture”? It’s genius and makes me giggle every time I think about it. Counter Culture’s cleaning products focus on killing the bad bacteria instead of ALL bacteria, as most disinfectants do. That leaves the good bacteria behind for balance! I love the scents and they work very well. I also really love their fabric fresheners.
6) Easy Fermenter Starter Kit
For beginner fermenters, or those looking to make their love for fermenting a little easier to fit into their lifestyle, this Easy Fermenter Kit by Nourished Essentials would be a very useful gift. This kit allows you to be able to ferment in jars without using crock pots. It comes with the essential tools to make fermenting easy, and it also includes a users guide, detailed ebook, and helpful video guides. The kit does not come with jars, so you can get fermenting jars here.
7) Local Kombucha
Visit your local Farmers Market or search local shopping collectives to discover local kombucha brewers. I really enjoyed a rose flavored kombucha from a local DFW brewer, Black Dog, at the Dallas Farmers Market! Do a google search or go to a local market or flea market to se what you can find!
You can contact Black Dog Kombucha on Farmspread
